Should women be allowed to vote?

  • I was thinking about another post where it was stated that women should be involved in government. Do you believe that this extends to voting?

    Since women CAN vote here in the US, should they?

    Please be honest, but be nice. I am really curious!

  • SHOULDN'T not should.

    Oh and what I meant by "be nice" is be charitable to your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ if there are varying opinions.
     
    I personally won't  be offended by the answer because I'm not the greatest/most informed citizen anyway, sadly.

  • Until I hear for sure that voting doesn't matter in this country, I feel that at this point, all of us have an obligation to vote.  We need to show that we're paying attention, and the more of us that vote, the better.

    That being said, I do think that the vote for women was just one of many things that led to division in the home.  

    I always make sure that my H and I are on the same page with who and what we're voting for ... I don't vote against him.

  • I say no. Most women let their emotions override their reason. Women are more easily duped by politicians' BS. Men are usually better at cutting through the bull and making a reasoned logical decision.

    Honestly, I think the whole "one person, one vote" idea is garbage. Most people, imho, are too ill-informed, ignorant or plain stupid to vote. Just look at how many people were taken in by Obamao's rhetoric about Hope and Change.

    There should be some sort of test to be able to vote. If you show up to vote wearing a Lady Ga-Ga shirt or with your pants sagged halfway to your knees, sorry; you are not allowed to decide where this country goes.

  • There's more than one way to answer this question.

    ~Voting is about power.  Women shouldn't have too much, because it undermines patriarchy.  I think that really gets to the heart of your question.  

    ~Voting is retarded;  they're just pretending to listen to you  :jester:

    ~Democracy is a revolutionary idea in the west and that revolution has not gone well.  So, I'm gonna say, I think we'd be better off going back to what we had before.  In other words, I wouldn't call this "progress."  Or maybe I should say, progress doesn't equal good.

  • I'm thinking back to a sociology prof I had who was an uber feminist. He would kill me if he knew I even asked this.   :scared2:

    Sounds like a man who understood his job.  Although, his style might have left something to be desired.

  • As Roland Deschain pointed out, women are generally too emotional & easily influenced by the agitprop shown on television. It doesn't really matter anyhow, voting is an exercise in futility. As Stalin said, those who vote decide nothing, those who count the votes decide everything. Voting in the U.S., or indeed just about any country in the world at this point is rather like deciding if you'd rather be shot or given cyanide. The one thing that isn't allowed is to choose not to be murdered at all. International Jewry controls both parties. Bongo is an obvious communist, but Romney would be very little better. He knows full well what would happen should he decide to dare defy the orders that he's been given (in the event of him being "elected" that is). He'd end up like Kennedy. No worries of that though. He, like the others, republicans & democrats, has been a good little toady all of his life, & will most probably continue to be one until the end.

  • Yes, of course women should vote; we all have an obligation to vote where possible. Suspecting that it's all rigged anyway doesn't remove that obligation.

    From SSPX.org, "Catholic Voting Guide":
    Quote

    ...Pope Pius XII was even more explicit two years later, again when
    speaking to the parish priests of Rome. He explained that in the precise
    circumstances of the time it was an obligation under pain of mortal sin
    for all the faithful to use their vote, and this even for women. Although
    it is certainly true that in the traditional conception of democracy it is
    only the heads of families who vote, it is perfectly permissible for women
    to use the right of vote when it is granted, and in fact it becomes an
    obligation to do so when the common good depends upon all Catholics
    using their vote correctly.


    Here is the text of March 10, 1948:

    In the present circumstances, it is a strict obligation for all those who
    have the right to vote, men and women, to take part in the elections.

    Whoever abstains from doing so, in particular by indolence or weakness,
    commits a sin grave in itself, a mortal fault. Each one must follow the
    dictate of his own conscience. However, it is obvious that the voice of
    conscience imposes on every Catholic to give his vote to the candidates who
    offer truly sufficient guarantees for the protection of the rights of God and
    of souls, for the true good of individuals, families and of society, according
    to the love of God and Catholic moral teaching.

    Fortunately 'one man one vote' makes little difference in our Republic. Many is the time one candidate won the popular vote but lost the electoral vote. We the people have never chosen our leaders. We are given the choice between people that someone else chose to present to us as candidates, and even if we coose to vote for them it really only makes a difference if people in a 'swing state' also vote for that candidate.

  • In The Dawn of All by Monsignor Robert Hugh Benson, which envisages an alternative scenario to his Lord of the World, a Catholic state comes about because women were given the vote!

    It's science fiction of course, but I found that an intriguing detail.
